With the clock change bringing on earlier winter nights, Lakewood Police Chief Greg Meyer is urging pedestrians to wear reflectors when walking after dark.
“Each year, we see numerous pedestrian accidents on the roads, and reflectors will help you stay safe,” says Chief Meyer.
The Police Department will soon be giving out free reflector belts in an effort to increase safety.
“We are currently awaiting our new shipment, and will have them to handout soon,” Chief Meyer told TLS. “In the meanwhile, we remind residents that they should be wearing their belts, and follow pedestrian traffic laws.”
